, president obama, mitt romney, are going to fan out across the battleground states over the next four days. both candidates will spend lots of time in ohio, because as ali pointed out, it's a dead heat. president, three events there. he's going to be talking jobs, and a national public radio poll 57% of those surveyed said economic issues are the most likely to affect their vote. cnn's brienne into keilar is live in grove city, ohio, this morning. good morning. >> good morning to you, cole dad. we do know that president obama will be addressing those jobs numbers when he speaks here. actually i should say, we are in hilliard, ohio, very close to grove city, just outside of columbus. so we know that he'll be addressing those jobs numbers. the big complication for him would be if the numbers were worse than expected. especially if they tick up to 8%, because that was an important sort of mental hurdle that the country cleared last month. and then for mitt romney, obviously, the complication would be if they're better than expected, because he's been making the argument that this economic rec

it comes to responders, we advocate in new jersey, federal, state, county and local people all working to the, and let's call it as it is. president obama has been really hands-on in this. the governor's heard from him numerous times. i've been on calls with him numerous times. he's taking a personal interest. he's been reaching out to the head of pse&g talking directly to that ceo, so he's been doing an incredible job, cutting through red tape, connecting directly to those affected. and i saw it late last night in one of our public housing authorities, the floods, power outages, the challenges, looked him in the eye and let them know that the president -- i talked directly to the president. he has a direct concern about what is happening right here on the ground. so this isn't politics. right now this is just people, human beings, facing human tragedy, and pulling to the to do something. >> mayor cory booker joining us this morning by phone. thank you mr. mayor. appreciate your time. good luck with all the cleanup, not only in your city. still ahead this morning going to talk about th

obama took the extraordinary action to issue a major disaster declaration based upon the impact that had occurred. what that means is now not only are we providing direct response, but also financial support to state and local governments for response. individuals in these immediate declared areas can start registering for assistance by calling 1-800-621-fema or going to and start the registration process. we know there are people in counties that have not yet been declared. we will be adding on additional counties throughout the day, and probably over the next several days. really are still in response mode. and what people can do to really help right now if you're in the area, if you're not somewhere that's safe, stay inside. going outside is probably the one thing the responders would ask you, stay inside, stay safe. this is a response situation. as you're pointing out, this is not over. we still have more weather to deal with. hopefully people will be able to stay safe until we can get to the other side of this storm. >> so are you saying that in new york and c

asking for information. i think people know we're taking this seriously. president obama signed an emergency declaration. we're working through our state and governor corbett. we're constantly pumping out information to folks. people know that this is the real deal. they knew that irene was tough. this is going to be tougher and probably last longer because this is a slow moving storm. so it's just going to expand on the amount of rain and wind and that's a tough combination for us in a big old northeastern city. >> it sure is. mayor michael nutter joins us from philadelphia. thank you, sir, for your time. we certainly appreciate it. let's head to baltimore, shall we? let's chat with stephanie rowelings blake. she's the mayor. we appreciate your time this morning. mayor nutter was telling us he feels that people are heeding the warnings. that even though irene at least where i am was not such a tough storm, there's still really understanding that there's a big difference between what irene brought and what sandy could bring. are you seeing the same thing? >> we are seeing the sa
